LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) V.J. King scored 17 points and Deng Adel added 16, including eight during Louisville's 10-0 run to close the first half, to help the 12th-ranked Cardinals pull away from William & Mary for a 91-58 victory Monday night.

Louisville (2-0) initially struggled against the Tribe's up-tempo style, going scoreless for 3:06 and allowing William & Mary to pull to 34-31 with 2:13 remaining in the first half. Adel took charge over the final 1:31 with five free throws and a 3-pointer during the spurt that gave the Cardinals some space entering the break.

Louisville then outscored William & Mary 10-2 over the first 4 1/2 minutes of the second half to lead 54-33 and held the Tribe without a basket for nearly 6 minutes.
